Subject: Not too shabby of a film
I found this movie not too shabby. The plot is ridiculous (intentionally in a screwball comedy type way) but the dialog is very witty, much more so than today's films. If English isn't your first language this film might be hard to watch as all the dialog is extremely fast. I guess it might just have been the style back during that time. The picture quality is good for a black and white film and its immediately apparently how much sharper everyone is dressed compared to modern times. Overall this film still holds up with the times for what it is.
